I guess they're going to use the same trail as last year PSK. I hoped our Bruneian MTB and downhill riders will make an impact and took the challenge.

I received an email from a group of cyclists from Miri and they wanted to know the direction to Hutan Simpan Berakas (Berakas Forestry Reserve / Berakas Recreation Park)

Just open up wikimap – http://wikimapia.org/ and type Brunei on the search button and look for Berakas Recreation Park or you just can type the GPS coordinates

The GPS Coordinates: 4°59'21"N 114°55'19"E

If you’re driving from Miri, just follow the Main road from Sg Tujuh Border all the way to Berakas Recreation Park. It around 100km+++ and the direction is go straight from the border and follow the main HIGHWAY.

We are thinking of joining the competition since it is open to Bruneians and further more $10 registration. I know we are going to compete with the best mountain bikers from Brunei and not to mention from other ASEAN countries and for sure 100% gerenti kana 'sayur' or more precisely jadi 'sambal' tapi bila lagi masanya kan ikut yang bertaraf ASEAN. Kami ani bukan lah kuat sangat (kuat pun inda) kira bawah bawah lah..............................
